When something bothers you...

Change it!!!
The window behind our bed in our bedroom has been bugging me for a while. I did not like those blinds, they felt sterile and tome they made the room very uninviting. I kept looking at that window and wanting something different, I just did not want one of those curtains that was all soft and mellow. I wanted something that was going to make the room warm and inviting. well, I bought these dark brown curtains and the room changed instantly. The picture does not even show the change all that well. I am really happy with the change, now when the sun hits the room the contrast with the dark color makes it so cozy!!! Love it!

Disney Album

I finished the Disneyland album. I am so reliever because I had a lot of pictures and it felt like I was going to work on it forever. I think one of the aspect of scrapbooking that I enjoy the most is the feeling of reliving a special memory. This trip has been great fun for the entire family, I loved spending time with the kids and see them so happy and easy going for once. And it has been great to live those moments again while I was putting the album together.

The Happiest Place on Earth

We are back from a 4 day vacation in Disneyland and we had a great time (if we don't count the few times Lucas went wondering off!) and it is hard to get back into normal life, including school and work. Still very tired as we walked all the time and took advantage of the early entrance each day (meaning wake up call at 6AM!), but boy did we do a lot! The highlights would have to be Lucas loving Thunder Mountain and the Matterhorn (hands up in the air), Alex forcing me to go on the California screaming roller coaster (never again, my stomach is still upside down), all of us loving the Aladdin show and Soaring over California (both in California Adventure), lots of food (including the Mickey shaped waffles, yummy!) and simply watching the kids having a great time and being there with them.
